It’s back to school season! Here are a few things to make it easier (and safer) for kids with scoliosis.
✓ Keep that backpack light! Clean it out regularly and don’t keep any unnecessary items in it.
✓ Get a second set of books. Keep one at home and one in your locker. Visit your locker between classes to get the book you need for the next class. (RhinoKidz™, contact us if you need a letter for your school to give you the second set of books.)
✓ Use a binder with loose-leaf paper instead of separate notebooks for each class. It’ll help cut down on added weight in your backpack.
✓ Wear your backpack correctly. Wide straps are best and should be worn over both shoulders.
Follow these tips to be kind to your back, and have a great school year!
